As well as car window tinting, Trublutint Window Tinting provide window tinting for home and office as well. Makes finding local window tinting easy, helping you find what is best for your vehicle, home, or business. Trublutint Window Tinting is the premiere window and car tinting business for commercial, residential and auto window tints. The more windows there are in your home or building, the greater the benefits of installing window film. Security window tinting film is much stronger than the popular solar window tinting film utilized on cars, house or office.

Energy Saving Window Films

Window films can save you money and the environment by making your home more energy efficient. With energy controlled window films up to 79% of solar energy is blocked from entering the home or office. With window films you can increase your energy efficiency, improve your environment while lowering cooling costs, and maintain a more comfortable and productive area. The less energy you need to cool and heat your home means a smaller energy bill. Glass tinting for your home or office is one of the best ways to reduce energy expenses. You can reduce the heat in your home, office substantially.

Stained Glass Effect Window Film

A variety of window films and security window film and safety window films are available to hold glass together in the case of a break in. Window film binds the window together, so in the case of an accident it will actually hold most of the glass intact, even if the window shatters. Exterior window film, for the most part, looks and feels the same as interior window film. Armorcoat window films help to hold window glass in place, if shattered. Most window films are applied to the inside glass surface of a window. In cases where the window glass surface has a curvature, there is a need for extreme care to mate the flat surface of the film with the window glass successfully.

Security And Safety Window Films

One of the most common usage of window films is to add privacy. Whether your purpose is privacy, style or both, their decorative films have you covered. Decorative window films can add a personal input to privacy and style. Privacy may be important to you and window films allowed you to block off unwanted view and offers privacy. You can have privacy, and still have a view of the rest of the world. Privacy film for flat-glass commercial and residential applications may be silvered, offering an unimpeded view from the low-light side but virtually no view from the high-light side.

Stained Or Frosted Glass Windows

Film on frosted glass is a fraction of the cost of actual sandblasted frosted glass. There are films made to look like professional glass etchings, stained glass windows, frosted glass and much more. Frosted glass and etched glass can be very expensive and impractical to use. Decorative window film is less expensive than frosted, etched or stained glass. You may try out stained glass effect window film if you like stained glass and colored glass design. Even if you prefer to use frosted glass film design, you can still choose many patterns that create etched glass effect.

Self Adhesive Window Films

Artscape films are easily applied to any smooth glass surface. Adhesive-free window films are by far the more convenient one as it can easily stick to glass surface and easy to remove when it is time to redecorate. There are two basic types of decorative films, adhesive-based polyester films, and adhesive-free static-vinyl films. Adhesive films are the more difficult of the two types to install and are best applied by an experienced window film installer. There are some significant drawbacks to static cling decorative window film compared to conventional DIY window tinting films. To remove the glass film, you just need to peel off the glass film.

A Fraction Of The Cost Of Etched Glass

Decorative films are applied to glass creating a beautiful etched glass appearance without the etched glass cost. Decorative films are a cost effective, versatile alternative to the traditional method of acid etched patterned glass. Light is dispersed softly, rendering a tranquil atmosphere, which reproduces a beautiful etched-glass appearance not typically found in window films. The window stays put, and just the film is replaced, at a fraction of the cost. Decorative window films can provide the same look as expensive etched glass at a fraction of the cost of laminated panels, patterned or sand blasted glass. Etched glass just adds originality to your home, but etched glass can be expensive and hard to find.

Varying Levels Of Privacy And Light Reduction

Decorative Window Film provides privacy while allowing natural light to enter the room. Skylights are designed to let in natural light and to give an open feel to a room, but too much sun can make the space uncomfortably bright and hot. Frosted privacy film is translucent, meaning light will still enter in the daytime, but from the outside no one will see in. Decorative window film lets in light while still offering privacy. Ideal for almost any application, frosted window film ensures privacy without sacrificing natural light. Depending upon the decorative pattern chosen, window film may provide total 24-hour privacy, or semi-privacy, allowing you to see out while obscuring views in.

Manual V Auto

What I, as a female fail to understand is the need for manual, the ability to just put a vehicle in D and go, put my foot down a little more and go a little faster seems to be the ultimate in driving pleasure yes you may be able to control the speed better but D to Drive is common sense plus I have both hands safely on the wheel or doing my makeup or any other number of tasks I can do without being bothered by gears and clutch riding and hill starts, I couldn't even tell you the last time I used a handbrake.

So what am I missing out on guys?

EuroMeet 30/5/14

Hey Guys,

I got invited by James Whimp to go to an Euro only meet (Eurononymus) The afternoon started with me waiting for James to get himself ready (high maintenance much), As I don't have a euro car (300zx or Jeep) I hitched a ride in his VW R36 Passat (was secretly surprised about how quick the gear changes are on a 2010 auto).

We headed out to the Centenary Car Wash where James and I met with the two owners. We talked about how the car wash centre came about, from its conceptual idea to how it then became their super plan to how much work actually goes into making an elevated platform, 8 meters above-ground to make a level area its mind boggling really. The view over Sumner is amazing, you can see over the whole industrial area and way out to the distance, (I can even spy the roof of my workshop in Boron St) I totally recommend everyone checks it out.

We were shown the setup behind the screen door and just how advanced it is behind there everything from the water softener to the heater and all the piping and electronics and my favourite bit the multicolour foaming agents that give that awesome rainbow affect you see they really have gone to the extreme with car cleaning and have a real passion for it have a chat to them when your there about it.

We had a nice array of cars meet up at Centenary Car Wash everything from VW's to BMW's which were all nicely dressed and looking the part. We were told we had to wait a few minutes by James as we had one last guy coming and he wont be far off and we also had to wait for him to clean his car.... Collectively the sighs were heard WE WERE NOT IMPRESSED... Then he rocked up and he was very promptly forgiven... But seriously how can you stay mad at a guy that rocks up in a McLaren especially when its not often you get to cruise with a new McLaren.  It is a nice car and I completely can understand the hype but its definitely no Dodge Viper ;-P

We left Centenary Car Wash at about 1930 and had some fun with the McLaren even "raced it"! the Passat won to 60 kmph, (Jay in the McLaren was behind us when we started and he didn't know we were racing but we still won lol) We arrived at Calamvale undercover car park and rolled in looking fly as we usually do :P.

I was a nice small event maybe 50-60 cars it was romantic in its purist form nothing molested (except for Maice's laser) everything was waxed, chrome was dressed, paint polished and the ladies (cars) were there to impress there were some nice Auto-mobiles from Minis to Golfs and Combi vans to Fiat cup cars.

We were there for about an hour or so and everyone did what they usually do after a meet and headed off "home" Very few things surpasses the feel of having a night out with the people that get you, in the scene that you live for.  Some say we need to grow up and be serious with our life get a hobby like golf or bowling.
If you hear that, don't get mad at them don't even react just say I am sorry for you, sorry that you have never experienced the deep deep love and pleasure of restoring something from what was considered trash and crafted, sweated, toiled over that thing until it became what you saw it as. When you first found it discarded by someone else. I am truly sorry you don't have the deep joy and sense of accomplishment knowing there is no other like it in the world with that story.

Thanks for listening to my ramblings thoughts and experiences
shiny side up guys...

Andrew Price Racing - Bathurst Winner

Hi guys back again with another blog (starting to slowly make a habit of these).  We were lucky enough to be able to be on board with Andrew Price Racing for a second year of sponsorship, the main sponsor for the Swift Series for 2014 is Easy Skin Australia, a revolutionary latex paint we are stocking this product as official re-sellers and with me being a vinyl wrapping guru I was asked to do the installation of the partial vinyl wrap and also the application of the Easy Skin spray.   Below you will see the amazing outcome achieved in 1 night :D  

Andrew Price was able to bring his little Swift at the Bathurst races to podium quality victories in all three of his races including 2 seconds and a first. 

To celebrate the team from Easy Skin invited our family out to Korean BBQ at Wooloongabba which was Lisa and my first time and it was a brilliant night out celebrating Andrew's victory.

Women in Small Business Network Lunch

Had a great day yesterday attending the Buds to Blossom Women in Small Business networking lunch at Springfield Lakes Hotel.

Networking is one of those things that at the very beginning makes me very nervous but as the questions start flowing the nerves quickly go away making me see the like minded women in this room.  Truman and I have run Trublutint for 5 years now and we are at the stage where we are looking for new direction and opportunities, one of these I guess tactics we are exploring closer is business to business networking, our business can benefit another business in more than one way, from their vehicle tinting and signage to their shop or home tinting to the promotional material they use. 

Jade from Be Social, Be Savy was brilliant for her first workshop, taking us from the very basics right up to some practical ways to implement the marketing strategies. 

MayKing Tea was very passionate about Tea, Shoes and social media mainly Twitter which is that one platform I don't think ill ever completely understand lol although Trublutint has had a twitter for many years I now have a better understand of just what I should be doing with it to not just generate leads but to actually generate blossoming relationships, after all business is all about relationships.

It was refreshing to know that a lot of the strategies we currently use for building relationships and getting our brand not only seen as Trublutint the Window Tinting, Vinyl Wrapping, Signage and other aftermarket accessories shop but a family brand that can offer customers solutions to their problems. 

I am looking forward to blogging more and more and so is Truman :) 

Until next time 
 Have fun
Lisa xx
